Steady, even flavor. Tastes exactly like it should and as I hoped it would. Has nice soap sudsy head and mild hint of vanilla. Goes down easy and I don't mind it as a session beer. I really like it and so do the ladies who have sampled it.

Pretty smooth day time beer. Nice clear golden pour and a hint of vanilla to set a palate right.

Poured a beautiful deep orange/amber with a thin ring of whit head. It looks pretty good, not at all like any form of adjunct lager. Scent is very sweet, with heavy notes of cream, maize and sweet malt. It's a simple, yet pleasant scent, like a cream soda, or vanilla soda. Flavor follows the nose, very sweet. Heavy sweet cream flavors and vanilla, laid over a solid backbone of sweet malt and maybe some maize adjuncts, with a moderate level of floral and earthy hops that balance the sweetness. The end of the sip and the aftertaste are slightly bitter, especially for the beer's 21 IBUs. It's unique, has a nice combination of sweet and bitter and the vanilla notes are excellent. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It drinks smooth and creamy, as it should. Quite an excellent mouthfeel. I like this beer a lot. It has a nice flavor, that's sweet without being cloying and balances in some bitterness. It has a pleasant vanilla heavy scent and an excellent medium bodied creamy mouthfeel. I'd drink this one again.

Tastes like a dry cream soda with a bit of bitterness. Fuller bodied than a cream soda which would make this a nice choice when you want to fill that itch.
